Nominate Your Favorite Rockstar Genealogist, and then Vote!

Geneablogger John D. Reid, who writes Canada's Anglo-Celtic Connections blog, has hosted a yearly Genealogy Rockstar poll, with the opportunity for readers to vote for their favorite Rockstar.

Nominations are now open for the 2015 Genealogy Rockstar - see John's post for Rockstar Genealogist 2015 Nominations Now Open to nominate a Rockstar who is not already on the list.  The list is open for further nominations until noon EDT Sunday, 6th September. Voting should start on Monday, September 7th.  Read all of John's post for more information.

John's criteria is pretty simple:

"Rockstar genealogists are those who give "must attend" presentations at family history conferences or as webinars. Who, when you see a new family history article or publication by that person, makes it a must buy. Who you hang on their every word on a blog, podcast or newsgroup, or follow avidly on Facebook or Twitter?"

The current list is on John's blog post and has all of my favorite Rockstars.  I have met, in person, at least 58 of the persons on the current list.  I just nominated two more Rockstars in my book.  I am on the list also, thank you to whomever suggested it.
